My First Year as a Blogger

In my first year I have racked up 65 posts.  That's not bad at all.  Especially since I've had quite a busy year and blogging takes a lot longer than I could have ever imagined it to.

Highlights of the year for me has been all the events I have attended, though not all written about unfortunately.  Delving into events again; namely 'A Vintage Tea Party' but more to come.  Some of other people/friends projects I have been lucky enough to be involved with.  The Book(s).  And starting up my blog and brand; The Dressing Parlour of course!  This ultimately has lead me to push myself forward more and to get out there to do more things.  Things that I love and things that, well, make me a happier person.

I would like to carry on blogging as long as people like to read what I write.  At the moment it seems I have so much to say, I just don't always have the time to post them up.  I would like to manage that better in this new year because I don't want to miss anything out again.  Not if I can help it.  This is almost like a diary and who would want to miss a chapter of their life out of that?

I would like to thank everyone who has stumbled across my little old blog and stayed a while.  I will make a birthday post when the date comes.  Maybe a Birthday give-away post?  What to give...?

I leave you here with some of my favourite things of my year in the order that they happened.  xxx

2011 started with my stylist work being on display.

Hand on my heart, that is the nicest tattoo I have ever seen (and I have seen MANY).

Thank you doll for all your support! It's nice to know you can connect with people even though we are all so far apart. Happy blogging to us both x

Miss Lindy Lee said...

Oj, så komiskt att komma över din blogg, och se kända ansikten! Träffade Malin på en bar i Oslo, genom gemensamma vänner, och i tillägg har du Marea på bilderna från A-bombers, en väninna till mig!
Lägger till dig, intressant och livlig blogg! Och så måste jag ju erkänna att du har en helt fantastisk tatuering, vem är det som gjort den?
Ha det fint!

Thank you for your comment. My tattoo is by Valerie Vargas from Frith Street in London. She is amazing! I'm happy you like it too x
